How Secure is Your IoT?

Media and entertainment firms are uniquely vulnerable to cyber crime. High-profile products and complex production processes, coupled with the media and entertainment industry’s extensive use of outside vendors, give cyber criminals more opportunities to attack.

The Rise of IoT

More than half of media and entertainment firms experienced three or more cyberattacks over a 12-month period, according to a new survey from specialist insurer Hiscox.

“Media and entertainment firms are uniquely vulnerable to cyber crime,” Hiscox said in a news release. “High-profile products and complex production processes, coupled with the media and entertainment industry’s extensive use of outside vendors, give cyber criminals more opportunities to attack.” The survey found that 51% of media and entertainment firms had experienced three or more cyberattacks over a 12-month period – and found that one third of respondents were skeptical or not confident that their vendors’ cybersecurity strategies would protect their intellectual properties and assets.

Mitigate IoT Risk within Media

From tracking product flow to using IoT digital sensors in products, entertainment and media companies transmit sensitive data through IoT devices, and this explosive growth of IoT has created massive blind spots in security. Media and entertainment companies need a security platform that delivers a proactive IoT security solution, which detects threats, assesses risk, isolates attacks, and integrates with your existing IT security department to defend your entire network.

In order to begin mitigating the risks created by IoT devices, you need the ability to:

  1. Detect and identify 100% of the devices on your network – across all of your segments;
  2. Gain visibility down to the firmware level for unmanaged devices;
  3. Explore tailored intelligence about the devices on your network; and
  4. Generate risk reports and monitor alerts to support continuous risk management.

Finite State’s cybersecurity platform leverages its unique IoT device and firmware risk database to give unparalleled visibility into the exponentially growing number of IoT devices that now make up a significant percentage of most entertainment and media company networks. Just as important, Finite State delivers a proactive solution that leverages both defensive and responsive capabilities to defend the network — enabling you to see every device, know every risk, and detect and respond to even the stealthiest attacks.

The true potential of IoT happens only when it’s secure. Finite State enables the IoT revolution by providing that security.
